Wow he's only 41! I just checked him out on Wiki to confirm and the opening sentence made me LOL.

'Cédric Gracia is a French mountain biker, who now lives in Andorra with his team manager’s wife.'

Brilliant.

haha, this article rubs the readers the wrong way... I'm 100% with Peter. Come on Vital, don't try to avoid the blame for unethical behavior. Don't feel entitled because US readers offer you the privilege of our attention.

Looks like Bruni backed off at the bottom. Those rocks are no match for his setup.

Bruni's body position is also text book, which allows the suspension to work at its best. Over used cliché but he really is 'one with the bike'.

Oh and he won in 2015 on Boxxers FYI ;-)

There has been a strong downhill race scene in the UK since the early 90's. This is where the likes of Peaty, Warner, and even Minnaar etc all cut their teeth before stepping up world cups. There are some pretty serious tracks in the UK and even without huge elevation, they were always super technical. Guys like Brendan and Josh were racing downhill from a young age. Ratboy was taken under Peaty's wing at around age 12 and supported throughout his entire career.

I was working in a hotel in Les Gets in circa 2003 when Danny Hart and his family arrived in their van. Looking back, he must have been 12 years old and he was already being talked about. Pretty sure they had been travelling around the Alps riding all the best spots. Don't forget that it's very easy to drive to the French Alps from the UK and this is where a lot of these guys went from a young age.

He's a small dude. My guess is he would struggle weighting the wheels on a long bike. The 29er provides more front grip and allows him to ride off the back and go shorter on the wheelbase. This setup is perfect for his lively riding style.

Man I was there in '04. It was emotional, there were so many Brits there watching, on the roof of the telecabine, everywhere. Peaty was king, he still is! What a ledge!
